Courtney was one of my very first senior sessions many years ago when she was graduating high school.
We had the the 10baretoes Photography senior portrait experience wandering beautiful locations in San Francisco around Hayes Valley, Pier 7 and finally Baker Beach. It was a marathon but so much fun.
For this college senior session, we put a new spin on capturing snippets of her in this exciting new turning point in her life with personality portraits shot indoors in Walnut Creek and then wandered the streets of Oakland near Jack London Square.
I knew this area had a lot of variety and fun neutral textured backdrops and with our sunny weather, we were bound to find some golden nuggets on our wanderings, because the best locations are often the ones you discover when you’re chasing light. This girl had some great inspiration for her session and is basically a Madewell model which really lent to the inspired location choice and pulling lifestyle scenes.
